So again I ask... How does a supersexy supertall like this get approved in a place like NYC?

Lots of councils, lots of paperwork.

Because it's all as of right. The developer acquired many contiguous parcels that had a lot of air rights and did not need permission to transfer air rights, like Hines needed for Torre Verre.

The fourth, curved setback also is visible in the shadow rendering on de Portzamparc's website:

Can you please give URL for renderings on de Portzamparc web site. I can't find them!

It's a beautiful tower but does anyone else feel like it's facing the wrong direction?? I feel like the curve makes it look like it's facing away from the park.

not really the best views would be on the flat side so it makes sence to have it face that way at central park

Not much view for eventual Park Hyatt Hotel clients at the lower 20 floors but stunning kick ass view of the Central Park and beyond for eventual apartment owners.

The view of 57th street will be nice.

Now, I've only read a couple of pages back in this thread, and so I wonder: is this project moving ahead at full speed at the moment? Are there any additional delays or will we see the building reach ground level fairly soon?

And what is supposed to be at the very top of the building, what is that huge thing that sort of looks like a window but not really?

Oh yeah, nearly forgot: What an AWESOME tower this is

1st floor above the bottom, I think. Apparently it is very difficult to get a proper update shot as long as it is below grade.
